Counting down the days, saving some extra cash and kept looking at the H&M website everyother day anxious to see what was the collection was going to look like it was what had me motivated.
The day was geting closer (Nov 19 -2011 released day of the collection) and my anxiety was getting bigger as I knew it will be literally a wild human jungle in the stores.
On Friday November 18,2011 the "Weather Channel" predicted a -5 C temperature and definetely snow and ice during the night, WHHAAAAAAAT??? this cant be happening to me , by 7 PM Twitter was telling me that outside H&M there was a 100 people line-up already waiting for the Saturday morning open of the store (8AM) , I obviously freaked out!!!!!!!
" I have to be there and I have to get at least a little something of that collection and not be sold out like my failure last year " ( "Lanvin + H&M + Me = Failure" http://yukiandbee.blogspot.com/2010/12/lanvin-h-me-failure.html )
At 10 PM at home I was trying to find the warmest jacket that I own , gloves, a hat and anything that could keep me warm through the night because I was thinking the only way I am going to put my hands-on in any of the garmets it is if I go there and camp all night until the morning (obviously when I say "camping" I dont mean put up a tent there, but literally sleep outside on the streets).
I got to the outside of the store around 10:45 PM, around 200 people already waiting there and I joined the line , the minutes went by (tick , tock, tick , tock , tick, tock) "whaatt?? How come its only been 45 minutes since I arrived here?, It's felt like 4 hours!!!"
The night went by in between sleeping in the street and fixing my fur coat until my friend Teresa came to the rescue (5:30 AM) with a nice cup of coffee , I felt how my soul came back to my body as for instants I thought I was going to die of coldness.
The minutes kept going by and the time of the opening was getting closer and I was just so excited to go into the store, H&M people came out (7AM) and gave us those bracelets that assured us a place in-line to go into the women's collection, in the meantime I had to go and line-up for the men's side of the store, screaming, fighting , pushing and nervousness was in the air, but I still had so much faith that I will get some of the stuff that I wanted (especially that black-green jacket that I have been dreaming about for the last few weeks -see photo below-)
Here are the outfits that I got from the Versace for H&M Collection.
